0x8007045D - Windows Won't install

Hi,

Today I decide to make a clean install of Windows.

Boot from DVD and try to install ... when goes to 25 - 50% give me this error: 0x8007045D

Telling me that are broken files (whatever). I try with a different DVD but the result is the same.

I need to work and I can't install Windows.

Someone can help me?

Regards,

cs.oyen

Hello cs.oyen.

The first thought, if the Windows 7 install disk is one you burned yourself it may be a bad burn and needs to be done again, if so this would be the first thing to try.

Use the free ISO burner at the link below to burn another at a speed of now more than 4x and select to let the program to verify the disk before it finishes.

If there is nothing on the Hard Disk Drive that you need to save, it would be helpful to do a wipe (secure erase) of the entire HDD to get the best possible space to install Windows to.

What kind of motherboard/hard drive/video card/memory do you have? I had an gigabyte 965p-s3 motherboard (with dual controllers) which was a pain for me to install.
